LOCKN' Festival, Be Loud '19, Hootie at MSG


Greg Humphreys Electric Trio plays LOCKN' at Infinity Downs & Oak Ridge Farm, Arrington, VA in one week – we hit the main stage at 1 PM on Friday, August 23!

There is a special spirit of cross-pollination at this year's LOCKN', with sit-ins and jams scheduled throughout the four-day festival. Check out this schedule... the number of unique collaborations and up-and-coming acts on the bill is truly amazing. Keith Robinson, Matt Brandau and I are proud to be a part of this incredible line-up. Tickets and info are here... come hang with us!


GHET performs at Be Loud '19 at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC on Saturday, August 24! This great weekend of music to benefit the Be Loud Sophie Foundation is an annual event organized by some of my favorite people. There is an amazing roster of talent at this year's Be Loud, and the level of support from the community is inspiring. Can't wait to see everyone... Tickets and info here


Scratch a big one off the bucket list; got to perform “Hold My Hand” with Hootie and the Blowfish at Madison Square Garden on August 11, the second night of their two-night stand there. Thanks to Darius Rucker, Mark Bryan, Jim Sonefeld, Dean Felber, Gary Greene, Garry Murray, Peter Holsapple, and the whole organization for your incredible generosity in getting your old friend up on stage for a huge thrill.

I’ve been seeing these guys since we started trading shows around the Carolinas in the early 90s; I can say without reservation that they deserve every success they’ve had and will continue to have. They’ve proven yourselves to be one of the classic American bands, with a stack of timeless songs and one of the best singers of our generation.

Above all, They’ve proven yourselves to be great people who show us what it means to come together, step up and deliver. We need more of that in the world these days. ♥️ Thanks to Alex Curran for capturing the moment!

More EU solo dates added! In addition to my London bill with Mick Terry at the Green Note in Camden on August 28 (tickets here), I'll be at Beer Tales in Athens GR on September 14 and La Loca in Prague CZ on September 26. More dates TBA... check out my loop videos at FB qnd IGTV for a taste of what my EU solo performances this fall will be like.
